    Wedding invitations

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by hiddennovelist, Jul 18, 2009.

    I'm trying to get ideas for how I want to word my wedding invitations, and everything I have found online is either too corny or too bland. Do any of you have suggestions for what I could say? I'm drawing a complete blank, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated! :D :D

    I'll find a way to work "Don't be cheap" into it. ;)

    I like it! Especially "the one we laugh with, live for, dream with, love." Sounds very poetical and nice. :D

    You could just be short and sweet.

    Like, "Come to our wedding, there's gonna be free booze."

    Or, if you want to be long-winded...

    "Come to our wedding, there's gonna be free booze.
    Unless you neglect to bring a gift.
    In which case, no open bar for you."

    Yeah, sorry, I'm not very creative this evening.

    Rumpolean Solution: I'll spike the drinks!

    What I really mean: They are your friends, they'll understand ... or I'll make them understand. Damn lemme try that again. They're your friends, they'll understand ... or I will hunt them down and ... umm .. you know what I mean, right Hidden?

    Do you want to go traditional or seriously wacky? Spousal Unit and I went completely wacky.

    The envelopes and invitations were camo. The back flap said, "Be afraid. Be very afraid."

    The front of the invitation said, "Critical Mass Has Been Achieved."

    The inside read,

    Please join John and Mary in the first phase of their plan for political and economic domination of the known universe.
    (blahblahs about time and place)
    No gifts. They'd only be construed as bribes after we are in power.

    Haha, I know what you mean. Thanks, Rumpole. :D

    That's hilarious! We're going more traditional (mostly because I already bought those print-your-own invitation things, and they're all fancy and swirly and pretty), but I want a little bit of non-corny whimsy included, so it's not just "Dan and Lynda are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter, blah blah blah..."

    who's issuing the invitation?... the couple to be wed, or the bride's parents?

    Its not a wording suggestion, but a rule of thumb I hve developed over the years regarding attendance.

    65% of the people who will "Definatly be there" will show up
    30-40% of the "Maybe" folks will show up
    0-10% of the "I'll try" people be there.

    This formula has served me well, hope it helps with things!

    'Tis. I thought about going the parent route, but in the end, I liked the idea of it coming from us better.

    That's very helpful! We have a pretty good-sized guest list for the reception, and I've been trying to figure out how to get a semi-accurate headcount, since I'm pretty sure not everyone will feel the need to RSVP or attend if they do RSVP, so I really appreciate that. :)
